ESPAÑA

Soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian and guitarist Grisha Goryachev lead a journey of discovery into the musical soul of Spain, through haunting songs by Manuel de Falla and Fernando Obradors to flamenco infused works by Albéniz, Enrique Arbós, and Manolo Sanlúcar. Joaquin Turina’s Piano Quartet, an intense and lyrical evocation of the composer’s Andalusian roots, brings the journey to a dramatic conclusion.

SONGS OF IDENTITY

The quest to preserve and celebrate the voice of a people links the works in Songs of Identity. Béla Bartók’s Hungarian Folksongs and Zoltán Kodály’s Serenade showcase the legacy of their pioneering studies.

Isabel Bayrakdarian performs a selection of these beautiful works, accompanied by pianist Serouj Kradjian and fellow Festival musicians.

SUMMER PASSION

2:15 PM Pre-concert recital
featuring Edmonton’s up-and-coming young musicians

Sunday’s program moves from the percussive liveliness of Paganini’s Sonata No. 1 for violin and guitar to the delicate restraint of Grieg’s Andante con moto. Two works for soprano and string quartet, Chausson’s Chanson perpétuelle and Respighi’s Il Tramonto introduce a mood of reflective melancholy. The program concludes with Elgar’s Piano Quintet in A minor.
